About

Let us do the heavy lifting.

We are a client focused organisation and regard safety as paramount. We have built extensive expertise sourcing talented apprentices and trainees, and currently manage a national workforce across the full spectrum of traditional trade specialisations. 

We understand that no two projects are the same and a team of experienced staff will work with you to ensure a smooth transition of apprentices into your work site.

How Group Training Works

Through its status as a Group Training Organisation (GTO), MIGAS contractually employs apprentices and trainees, and facilitates all aspects of their training with their host employer and the Registered Training Organisation.

Group training is especially suited to businesses that do not have the time or resources to undertake all the functions involved in an apprenticeship or traineeship, or who require flexibility around the placement and rotation of their workforce. Apprentices and trainees can be rotated between host employers, offering training in a range of skills.

The GTO organises off-the-job training with TAFE or a preferred Registered Training Organisation (RTO). It also looks after wages, worker’s compensation and other employee benefits, as well as providing mentoring and support.

As an accredited GTO MIGAS is a one-stop-shop for advice and assistance for young Australians seeking the right apprenticeship or traineeship specialisation. It’s MIGAS’ role to understand what type of training and employment each person is seeking, and match them with the right host employer.

Exceptional people forging lasting careers

At MIGAS we are driven by a single purpose – to champion Australia’s skilled trade sector by connecting talented apprentices and trainees with the right jobs that will set them up for successful, rewarding and long-lasting careers.

The simple fact is apprenticeships have never been more crucial to our economy. The Australian Industry Group recently reported that more than one in three businesses surveyed said their biggest skills shortage was for technicians and trade workers. We believe investing in people to develop hands-on, “hard” skills will equip the next generation to lay a sustainable foundation for Australia’s future. This means we offer our apprentices the chance to enter a field with the confidence that their skills will be in demand, not just across this country, but often around the world.

We created a Career Journey Book to share with you the inspiring stories of past and present MIGAS apprentices and trainees who are living their dream career every day. They are proof of what is possible when you grasp onto the security, lifestyle and limitless opportunities offered by a career in skilled trades - and we get a thrill out of watching their careers soar as a result.
